The 90’s were probably best known as the ‘rise of the internet.’ The past decade could technically be called the ‘smartphone era’. The dramatic increase in smartphone use for both personal and business reasons has resulted in an array of apps available to the public to download with a single click. Today, smartphones help us travellers on a daily basis with information such as flight details and reservations. This is just one example, though. Here are five travel apps you could use for your planned trips in 2013.

As you know, Google Maps is finally out. And while most of us are busy tinkering this rich-featured third party app, qualified as a solid replacement for Apple’s iOS Maps, there is another way you can integrate it with Siri without jailbreaking your iPhone or iPad.

Anyway, for the record, it’s easier to integrate Siri with Google Maps as the default guide with a jailbroken device. You know how it works using the legacy devices. However, it doesn’t end there. You can also execute this command using your iPhone 5.

We’ve shown you how to gift an app on iPhone, as well as, on iTunes. If you’re using iOS 6, you’ll find the guide is no longer work. Apple has changed the way to gift an app to your friends. Rather than using the Gift button at the bottom of an app listing, Apple provides a system-wide action sheet in App Store for the gift feature.

To gift an app on iOS 6 App Store, tap the action button at the upper-right corner of the screen. This brings up an action sheet that provides various option button.

Finally Google Maps App is Back to iOS 6

Google Maps AppGoogle comes with a right-hook punch to Google Maps today. Yes! The native maps for iOS is now available with rich-features and intuitive functionality. Few months ago, We featured an update about Google Building Separate Maps App for iPhone and iPad, and the timeline was close to what the analysts predicted.

The company has spent seven years refining its offering to make the app as gorgeous as possible. The team’s efforts and hard work paid off – the internal systems, UI, smooth graphics that run like a video game, new swipe gestures that pop up the menus and more. The UI experience is contagious.

Drew Olanoff of TechCrunch also mentioned some drawbacks.

“Now here’s the bad news on this version of Google Maps, there are no biking directions, offline mode (although as soon as you get a route, it is cached on your device), indoor maps or offers as of yet. This would seem to be incomplete, but clearly the team wanted to put together a fantastic Maps app that serves the need of iOS users right this moment. Yes, Google didn’t want to pack everything in too tightly until the world had a chance to play with it. Fair enough, but some of these things would have been nice.

Here are some of the highlights:

  • Progressive user interface in vector based
  • Speed and search features (very fast)
  • Swipe gesture for “info sheet” that display the info of the place
  • Guided voice navigation for directions (driving and walking)
  • 360-degree panoramas of places around the globe with Street View
  • Fully optimised for iPhone 5

Google Maps App

Overall, Google maps is not absolutely perfect though. But it works better than Apple Maps. Think about the capacity of Google’s power house when transferring data to your device over 3G, LTE and Wi-Fi. Impressive, isn’t?

If you’re using iOS 6, go ahead to replace the stock Maps app with Google Maps. Even you’re using lower version of iOS, the new Google Maps app offers much better feature and streamlined experience. You can download Google Maps for free from App Store.

iTunes 11: How To Create Free Ringtone and Text Tone

December 1, 2012 — by Simon Ng299

iTunes-11-Logo.jpg

Apple has officially released the iTunes 11. The user interface is completely redesigned that is much simpler and clean. So far I love the upgrade but I’m concerned if it still allows user to create custom ringtone from any song in my music library.

It turns out the feature is still here and you’re allowed to create ringtone with 40-second in length. If you want to create your own ringtone or text tone for your iOS devices, instead of purchasing the tones from iTunes store, this step-by-step guide is specially for you. The procedures are completely tested on Mac, however, I think they should also work for Windows users. For those who are using older version of iTunes (e.g. iTunes 10) and have no plan for the upgrade, you can refer to the earlier guide.

Okay, let’s get started.
